Pondering Tidbits of Truth - December 21, 2017

Pondering Tidbits of Truth is my simple and inadequate way of providing nuggets of spiritual wisdom for you to chew on from time to time.

St. Francis de Sales

"God detests failings because they are failings. On the other hand, however, in a certain sense, He loves failings since they give to Him an opportunity to show His mercy and to us an opportunity to remain humble and to understand and to sympathize with our neighbor's failings."

(As quoted by Servant of God, John Paul I in his September 20, 1976 General Audience)

Servant of God, Madeleine Delbrel

"…the purpose of faith is to make God’s love for the world visible as it was visible through His Son. He has chosen us to present us to the world which He loves and which we must love with Him and through Him in the same way that He has loved it."

(From The Joy of Believing)

Paul Washer

"Your children will go to public school and they will be trained for somewhere around 15,000 hours in ungodly secular thought. And then they'll go to Sunday school and they'll color pictures of Noah's Ark. And you think that's going to stand against the lies that they are being told."

(As quoted by Shaun Kenney in an article published in the November 23, 2018 issue of The Wanderer entitled Education, Adoration and a USCCB Election)
